Why measure surface roughness?

Good print quality and color reproduction requires a smooth surface. The surface roughness will also affect how different surface treatments, such as lamination, perform on a specific grade.

Surface roughness according to Bendtsen is a test method that is commonly used on rougher, non-coated grades.
